I am running Easy Apache 3.x and see Easy Apache 4.x available in my Cpanel control panel, but I've not upgraded because I see many draconian warnings when I start this process.

That said, my real issue now is that when I check for updates using Easy Apache 3.x I now see this, which I've never seen before:

Your profile has Apache 2.4.16 chosen to build

Your currently running apache is Apache 2.4.17

Also, for a few weeks now I've not seen any updates there for Apache or PHP (I'm running 5.5.30). Here are my questions:
  1. Is Easy Apache 3.x still working and offering me the latest updates?
  2. Should I ignore all of the draconian warning about Easy Apache 4.x might not work at all on my server and still upgrade?
  3. Why would Easy Apache 3.x be offering me an older and lower version of Apache--I've never seen that before?
Any help would be appreciated.

1. Yes. EasyApache 3 is still functioning.
2. The web stack installed by EasyApache 4 is quite stable. The warnings are about the migration from EasyApache 3 to EasyApache 4. Custom changes tend to cause problems. If you do convert and encounter problems, please don't hesitate to open a support ticket with us so we can resolve any problems, and get your server in a good state.
3. We downgraded Apache 2.4 to 2.4.16 in both EA3 and EA4 due to a bug introduced in Apache 2.4.17 that cause lots of problems. More information about that change is available here: EasyApache 3.32.4 Released (Apache downgrade!) | cPanel Newsroom

Thank you Kenneth! In an ideal world such news updates would be pulled directly into the Easy Apache module, so, for example, if I clicked on Easy Apache I'd see such critical news displayed within that module, rather than having to hunt around for answers for weeks. Just a suggestion.
